Halo Different From Call of Duty Thanks to “Really Rich Story, A Huge Universe”

343 Industries’ Dan Ayoub says the developer has “barely scratched the surface” with the stories told.

The two biggest shooters in the world today are unquestionably Call of Duty and Halo. While both games have their own dedicated followings, one wouldn’t be wrong in assuming there are many similarities between the two, especially with regards to their focus on multiplayer.

However, 343 Industries executive producer Dan Ayoub told CVG that he believes there’s enough to set the brand apart from Call of Duty. “I think what differentiates us as a brand from CoD is our story. I think one of the reasons Halo’s been around as long as it has is that there’s a really rich story, a huge universe – we have so many stories that we can tell.” At this point, Ayoub believes the company has “only scratched the surface” in terms of the story department.

“People really care about Johnson, Cortana, the Arbiter and want to know what’s going to happen to them. I think that just creates not only a loyalty but an eagerness, and when I think about why Halo’s been around so long, it always comes back down to that–on top of just amazing gameplay.”

The next game in the series is Halo 5: Guardians which will release on the Xbox One in 2015 and continue the story of Master Chief but with a new protagonist in the form of Agent Locke.

      Overall I agree. I’m a big COD hed. I’m enjoying AW alot. But the campaign is boring. Doesn’t make u care about it. Halo is one of (if not the only) game that does campaign and multiplayer on a really high level imo. That is to say that the campaign provides many hours of fun gameplay, with a great story, while also sporting one of the most fun and addictive mp experiences out there. I still luv going on those big nasty runs in COD tho.

      Agreed, but up until AW, most games have been. Advanced Warfare is the first CoD game in quite a while that hasn’t been total trash.

    This article is sort of a joke. Yea, they’re both shooters, but their style of gameplay is so vastly different, I don’t know why you’d even compare them.
